Help us promote the beauty of Samsø’s new blog.

The Energy Academy is located on Samsø and has seven employees who live on the island and two who live on the Danish mainland.

The Academy’s work presents a holistic model of community development in terms of the use and consumption of resources worldwide. We advise and inform with regard to: 1. Energy adjustments and optimization; 2. Innovation within sustainable technology and behaviour; 3. Education and capacity building.

Renewable energy and sustainability are not easy to illustrate via pictures, photographs or illustrations. That is why we have gone out of our way to encourage and inspire via art – because we trust that our readers know very well what a wind turbine or heat pump looks like. For example, when we explore the meaning of the word “resilience,” dare we use images of the American painter, Mark Rothko, from his series, “Break Into the Light”? Similarly, Edvard Munchs painting “The Scream” might not be out of place in articles we write about climate change.

That is why we’ve disrupted the current logic of editorial pictures, trusting that you as the reader have the ability to see images as another means to approach topics about sustainability and renewable energy in addition to the scientific and logical approaches.

  3. The image must have a minimum size of 20 x 20 cm
